of an issue in the debate. mitt romney raised it last week and president obama blamed exxon mobil and they fired back at the president when he suggested changing the tax law to affect that company and it will come up in the v.p. debate and more down the stretch especially if prices are around $4 a gallon. >>eric: what do you think of the idea of relaxing the epa standards? the way i understand it, it is the california epa standard and keeping the national epa standard in place with the blending requirement. what do you think of that idea? >>guest: i'm not an energy expert but the politicians always have to be active in this situation you cannot just it is back and all the people in california, they are upset, they want something done. you can just say, we cannot do anything, it is up to the speculators and the markets. you have to try something. even though a last times when you do something, times it doesn't work. you have to be active whether you are a democrat or republican. you have to respond to the concerns. when you are spending this amount of money, $70 or $80 to fill up t

in 2008. governor romney trailing in the polls currently hoping to use his debate performance to narrow the gap. it was the first time the two candidates were on stage face-to-face, a chance for governor romney to one-on-one answer allegations that the obama campaign has been firing his way. one of them over this idea that governor romney is trying to implement a $5 trillion tax cut for the rich. he repeatedly answered that question for president until it finally came down to this. >> look i've got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that is not always true, but just keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i'll believe it. but that is not the case, all right. i will not reduce the taxes paid by high income americans. >> that is probably as close as last night's debate came to a memorable line. rather than being a selection of zingers it was uncharacteristic lee marked by substance, jon. jon: isn't that amazing, substance in a debate. what about the president's performance, and specifically senior voters and his appeal to them? >> reporter: you know, i think in the aftermat
hours president obama and romney will walk out on this stage behind me in the first of three debates in the next 20 days. tonight's session will be divided in to six 15-minute segments. allotted to topics related to the economy, healthcare and government. tens of millions of americans will be watching. according to the polls, most have already made up their minds. one recent poll says 7% of likely voters are still undecided. they will be the primary targets tonight. as the neigh watches. chief white house correspondent ed henry begins our coverage. >> in the run township the clash that will help decide whether he gets another four years, president obama stayed mum. leaving the heavy lifting yet again today to former president bill clinton in new hampshire, who made the case this is a choice about the next four years. >> the economy is not fixed. i am telling you, nobody can fix this much damage in four years. but the president's economic plan is better in the short run, better in the long run. >> reporter: the president made the opposite case in 2009. vowing to get the economy fixed
to romney debate, yikes in 12 languages. reassuring that governor romney has potential foreign policy powerhouse that the world is spooked by him. that is important. good to have the neighbors scared of you than the reverse. having lived in hell's kitchen that is the way to be. it's a macro hell's kitchen. crazy, creepy people out there. good they're terrified of the united states. >> bob: about romney? >> greg: spooked about anybody willing to use force rather than -- let's go back. focus on iran. remember in 2009 how president obama reacted to iran. a muted response. then he said he was troubled. his rough stance was a frown. that is what romney is talking about. >> dana: the other thing, his message to the debate is return america to position of economic strength and growth. if you talk foreign policy, the economic policy matters because you want a strong growing america to become the lender not be the borrower. we're not on that path. romney not saying he could get it done and get us on a better path to be a stronger world player in the future. >> bob: what he said about iran, i w
in the debates. >> geraldo: a fox news alert. i'm geraldo rivera reporting that in the wake of mitt romney's undeniable triumph in wednesday's presidential debate there is conflicting evidence on whether the republican challenger continues to enjoy a post debate bounce. the rasmussen pressial tracking poll says clearly that he does. scott scores the rates romney 49% to obama's 47%. but today's gallup daily tracking poll still has the president up slightly saturday's gallup scoring the race obama 49% to romney's 46%. nowyer with reflects the current reality it is obviously a razor thin margin. so is there added pressure on the vice presidential candidates for their are thursday night debate? and who better to ask than bill kristol, the editor of "the weekly standard." was chief of staff for are then senator dan quayle during his debate against senator lloyd benson. while he probably lost the debate the bush quail ticket won the 1988 election in a landslide. how important then are vice presidential debates, bill? welcome. what do you think? >> i think this vice presidential debate is importa
? >> 14% is the number. 23 million is the number quoted by governor romney during the debate. it is a grim employment situation any which way you slice it. bill: but now you're still now below the big number. you're below 8%. so to the politics on this now? >> that is where some of the mistrust comes in. how convenient the rate drops below 8% first time in 43 months, five weeks before the election. there is some mistrust of these numbers along with the contradiction between 873,000 people found work, only 114,000 new jobs. mistrust of this report. bill: on that point it will be interesting to see how president obama plays this in fairfax, virginia later today. how mitt romney responds. he is in virginia, southwestern part of the state. also in florida. >> i suspect the president will play it big, we're going in the right direction. look at this 7.8%. how governor romney will respond i don't know. bill: stuart, 9:20 a.m.. this will pop up again. martha: let's get context of this. back in december 2007, when the recession began the unemployment rate was 5%. in october of 2009, that is the pe
for the next debates? >> i think romney has to continue to hammer at these points. he gave a foreign policy speech, this monday, i am afraid it's a little bit late. when we were seized in the libya story and the american embassies were under attack from tunisia to indonesia, that was the time that he should have given it. now, he will be giving it. i think it's a great negatism but tell take the focus off the economy, which is where romney was scoring so heavily. he has to come back to the economy. stay on these points. he has to be a little bit wary because obama's going to come into the second debate, with low expectations and the second thing about this is, the second debate is going to be in a town hall that. places to obama's strengths. the relation with the audience. he has a way of connecting -- he did in the past. romney has trouble with that. if you remember the clinton/bush i debate, clinton won outright. so romney has to prepare for low expectations for obam awhich will help obama. he has to practice in a forum, in which he can relax with the audience. however, he has one great a
feeling. my feeling is probably mitt romney is down a point or two. i think the debate wednesday night is crucial. how these events unfold is going to be important. >> i agree he's down a point or two. rasmussen has him down by three, which is unusual. two other factors come in to play. one is the higher level of enthusiasm among republicans, 16 points higher. secondly, the undecided vote tending to go against the incumbent. so i believe that romney can come back. i think he will. i think a lot depends on the debate wednesday night. the debate is stacked to play in romney's favor. the things romney is accusing obama of owe mismanaging the economy, fast and furious, this banghazi stuff -, that can't be rebutted. what obama is accusing romney of, being a tax cheat, swiss bank accounts, all that kind of stuff, can be rebutted. >> sean: what obama will say -- thus this will be mostly on the economy. obama will say, it's getting better. that was the recovery summer of 2010. >> but romney -- there were a whole lot of people right now who want to vote for romney. want to vote against obama. b
about everyone, from right to left, says that romney won the debate. i gave you a full "a" and i give the president a "c" minus. there was a giant difference between their performance. everyone who was fair was impressed with how romney handled that from going to end. obama was stunned by how well romney was performing. he seemed almost to take a step back and tune out. >>neil: do you think he came in to it is on the clock, the president, to your point he didn't expect this, and he saw little risk in taking on mitt romney and even if romney did well it would not move the needle were and maybe that is what the folks are hoping today. will that be the case? >> they may be hoping that but as word gets out and as the coverage continues of the debate, more people would didn't watch the debate will hear about romney's performance. if they are not if romney or they are undecided they will be intrigued that he took on the president and did as well as they have now heard that he did or will hear they did. the criticism being made and you heard a couple of the obama spokesman making it, that ro
's why governor romney won the debate. lying had nothing to do with it that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. reaction, joining us from boston, democratic consultant marianne marsh and from washington kirsten powers. surprised the democratic party is getting so hysterical, kristen, are you. >> i wouldn't call it hysterical but i'm shocked to say that i agree with your talking points for once. i think that it is not right for the democratic party to go out calling him a liar. it's one thick for a talk show host to say things like that. but when a campaign or an official party apparatus starts using the word liar, i think a lot of people are going to feel that they're being kind of nasty. >> bill: also, sore losers, marianne. it just comes across at petulant, fifth grade stuff. i lost, i got my butt kicked so now i'm going to call the other side names. that's absolutely what this comes off as. >> the better thing would have been to correct the statements wednesday night during the debate. that would have been the better course. but now, october, with 32 days left to go in the ele
debate as the latest jobs report. and just this morning, governor romney already getting in some more prep time for next week's debate. and before hitting the campaign trail, in the key battle ground state of florida. and senator-- the national correspondent john roberts joins us live now from the city apopka. and the governor is scheduled to attend a rally. tell us about it. >> we've got a little bit after florida thunderstorm popped up and expected to be gone by the time the governor hits the stage here, and travelling on the i-4 corridor where elections are won and lost in florida and even up, rasmussen has romney up by a couple of points and trying to keep the momentum going from the great debate performance and trying to show voters he's not the scary guy that the obama campaign makes him out to be. and stopping by in a cuban restaurant and shaking hands with the folks and getting takeout and at the a campaign event in st. petersburg looking back on the president's debate performance which many saw as a flop. >> and did you hear what he had to say? i didn't either. i kept looking
governor romney's strong performance in last week's presidential debate a new "gallup poll" taken in the first three days after the faceoff, shows the two contenders locked into a dead-heat, 47% each. what does governor romney's team need to do to keep up the momentum? erin mcpike, national political reporter for "real clear politics.". erin, i know a lot of republicans are saying the momentum has swung governor romney's way. it is a sprint to the finish line. you seem to be a little more cautious about that. why? >> i am because i'm looking at "real clear politics" polling averages of all the battleground states and the president is still ahead in big states he needs to win like wisconsin and ohio. he also still winning in new hampshire and nevada. and when you add those states to the electoral college map, it shows still that it's a tough way for mitt romney to go. he has got to win more than just say virginia and florida if he can win those now. jon: how many of those polls that "real clear politics" averages, how many have been taken post-debate, do you know? are they reflecti
have r. speculating already who is going to have the best zingers. governor romney is a good debater. i'm just okay. >> bill: candidates warming up for the big showdown in denver wednesday night. brit hume and charles krauthammer will have some thoughts. >> our new abc "the washington post" poll shows him with that raiser thin lead among likely voters. >> break wide open when voters ask who do they expect to win. >> are the poll numbers rigged in favor of the president? bernie goldberg is analyzing that wait, you have this relationship, nine months later she has a baby didn't you say oh my god? >> bill: arnold schwarzenegger getting beat up by a small lady. >> i'm not perfect. >> adam carolla will analyze arnold on the grill. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. hi i'm bill o'reilly, thanks for washing us tonight. it's all about money. the upcoming vote all about cash and how we americans process it bomber wants to redistribute income and regulate from washington and set up a socially just economic system that guarantees outcomes. those who are
the campaign and coached him on the debates. what is a win for mitt romney tonight? >> mitt has to come out of this debate very substantive and lay out his vision for where he wants to take this country. people need to talk about how great he was and how he looked presidential. i believe it's all about mitt romney. we know the president's skills at debating and talking. he's better off with a teleprompter but he's still a glib guy with a lot of substance. but what we don't know is how good mitt is. he was good against primary opponents. but this is the president of the united states and he has to make his case effectively without being too strident and basically presidential. bill: you said voters have to say maybe. >> today the election would be won by obama in a close election. but we have to shift voters to say i'll give this guy another look. i'm not going to cast my vote tomorrow. i'll look at other two debates and move forward. if he doesn't do well tonight. many of these absentee ballots will be cast and it may be too late to turn around. bill: the viewership actually went higher as
's presidential debate. in just a moment, i will be joined for an exclusive interview by both governor romney and his runningmate, congressman paul ryan. even the most left-wing observers have conceded that their candzidate bombed without his teleprompter last night. obama aides are trying to pin it all on mitt romney. believe it or not, they are accusing the governor of lying. of course, they are the ones that are. watch this. >> again and again and again, he told the story to the american people that is completely... in contrast with what he said before and unfounded in fact. and that's going to catch up with him. i give him credit for strong performance. i give him an "f" for being honest with the american people. >> sean: for 90 minutes, president obama lied about his record and president obama lied about what he would do in a second term. you want proof? here it is. >> if you want to be president, you owe the american people the truth, the truth. >> the fact check. >> this claim is based on a fiscal fiction. >> the bipartisan nonprofit committee has called that a gimmick. the president i
becomes would it be smart for mitt romney it bring this up in the debate tonight. you know the president is going to hammer the governor over 47% remark. the campaign just did that you know it's going to happen again tonight. talking points believes mr. romney should, should point out that mr. obama used divisive rhetoric. that's true he has done that. will voters respond to that. some will. the casual voter may alcoholic it up to politics as usual. sos same old stuff. both romney and obama were speaking to the choir when they made controversial statements. they were whipping up the crowd. many romney supporters resent the fact that the nanny state is growing stronger in america. on the race front, polls show more than 90% of african-americans continue to support the president and truth be told he has not used race while governing this country. but there is no question that in that virginia speech, he did say that black americans in new orleans were treated badly simply because they were black. the problem for mr. obama is that's debatable. it's not a fact unless you are spike lee. the p
could not defend his economic record on wednesday night. that's why governor romney won the debate. nothing lying had nothing to do with it. >> yesterday, big news came out and it was a head scratcher for everyone from economists to pundits to politician and these were the unemployment numbers. here is what was confusing. only 114,000 jobs were added in the month of september. that's less than we need to keep up -- keep pace even with population growth. >> what do we need about 200,000. >> yes and 114 is considered anemic. however, somehow the unemployment rate dropped from 8.1 all the way down to 7.8 and that has left economists saying how did this happen? >> how in the world did this happen because 873,000 more people had jobs according to another survey that was a part of this thing. so to make sense of all of this for us this morning is economists and proffer of international business at the university of maryland peter morris is i is joining us this morning. >> hey, peter. >> we needed a smarter person to join us this morning. seriously last night on facebook and twitter peopl
'm not sure those questions will be posed. but i think it will be afire debate and romney will have a chance to -- >> bill: he will have a chance to -- >> he has a challenge. he's got to establish that he's conversant with these foreign policy issues and he speaks about them with knowledge and comfort am he did that today in his speech. >> bill: all right. thanks very much. ahead, new presidential polling. we'll give you the numbers. then bernie goldberg on press reaction to the rumble and adam corolla on record high gas prices in california. those reports after these messages i >> bill: in the impact segment tonight, some new polling is mostly good news for governor remain 9-11 but president obama has bright spots as well. according to a pugh survey, just out today, among likely voters, romney now leads obama 49-45. three weeks ago, pugh had the president on top 51-43. that's quite a turn around. it's due to the debate where 66% told pugh they say mitt romney won. just 20% believe mr. obama prevailed. rasmussen dale tracking poll today has the race tied among likely voters. 48% each. in iow
tougher with respect to president obama. >> lots will depend on these debates. if you look at mitt romney had double digits lost by double digits. got beat in two debates by newt gingrich and rose to the occasion. he only has three chances in this case. he has to come out of the box. there seems to be this fear about taking on the president in a tough way. you think some of this is race? when you were running you were putting your hat in the ring the race card was brought up against you. you spent your entire life helping people of all races in the city of new york. >> that is true. a lot of people came to my defense. i was called a racist, bill clinton was called a racist. i have seen bill talk to you and others saying donald trump is a good guy. we have a good relationship and he is a good guy. i believe the hate tried he had and maybe doesn't have any more for obama was unbelievable but people are afraid to to take obama on. i don't know what it is. >> this is amazing four years later he saved the democratic convention for obama. he said in 2008 they played the race card with me and th
screens. bill: governor romney will give a major foreign policy speech soon after the first debate ends. the first debate ends wednesday night, as you know. martha: marsha blackburn has also criticized the white house response. she'll join us on what she thinks should happen next. we are getting reports of another homicide bombing killing 14 people, two of them americans. the bomber drove into a nato patrol. doug mcelway joins us live. it was a couple weeks ago the u.s. suspended patrols with afghan soldiers because of these insider attacks. have these joint patrols resumed now? >> reporter: they have. they resumed last thursday and the insider attacks have also resumed. not only the attack you just mentioned but also the suicide bomber attack, homicide bomber attack. the motorcycle laden with explosives drove into that marketplace. critics say this attacks reflect an obama foreign policy that refuses to acknowledge the reality on the ground. u.s. marines are tying tourniquets to their legs in hopes of surviving ied attacks before they go out on patrol. >> we are going to get after this
that is exactly what mitt romney means to do when he gets on that debate stage in denver, is go off the president not just on what romney says are ineffectual policies like the president's healthcare law and stimulus packages, but the cost of those policies as compared to romney's own perscriptions that call for smaller less expensive government. for the president what he's going to try to do is say look, maybe things aren't so great but it is partly the fault of george w. bush and the republicans who were in office prior to the democrats taking control in 2009, so we need time to fix it, and by the way, the president will also say that he wants to increase taxes on people like mitt romney to help pay down some of that debt. >> reporter: we just put of that graphic there showing the $16 trillion of debt and there are so many digits it almost doesn't fit on the tv screen across the screen there, as you can see. but haven't americans in some way become number to astronomical numbers? how serious is this in. >> they have become number. is it the new normal this massive spilling of red ink but it rai
